The Second Wife
The finale of REVENGE OF THE MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN left Rose emerging into strength and light. Her life had changed out of recognition but, yet, out of it had emerged positives. A tougher attitude. New friendships. Independence. A clearer sense of self. In her middle years, Rose had found her form. But what of Minty, the woman who snaffled Rose's husband and her job? Now married to Nathan and the mother of six-year-old twins, she has achieved what many women dream of - the life of a well-to-do Yummy-mummy. Yet, the transition from bright, kitten-esque, sexy office siren to a coddled dependent is not entirely satisfactory. What happens to a contemporary Becky Sharp when she has achieved her objectives?
